Rapid shift in microbial community structure in a neutral hydrothermal hot spring from Costa Rica
In this work, we characterize the geochemistry and microbial community of Bajo las Peñas, a neutral (pH 6.5-7.4), hot spring (T = 62.0-68.0°C) located near Turrialba Volcano, Costa Rica. The microbiota at its two sources ...
Microbial Community Structure Alogn a Horizontal Oxygen Gradient in a Costa Rican Volcanic Influeced Acid Rock Drainage System
We describe the geochemistry and microbial diversity of a pristine environment that resembles an acid rock drainage (ARD) but it is actually the result of hydrothermal and volcanic influences. We designate this environment, ...
Pristine but metal-rich Río Sucio (Dirty River) is dominated by Gallionella and other iron-sulfur oxidizing microbes
Whether the extreme conditions of acidity and heavy metal pollution of streams and rivers originating in pyritic formations are caused primarily by mining activities or by natural activities of metal-oxidizing microbes ...
Special Issue: Diversity of Extremophiles in Time and Space
Extreme environments are fascinating ecosystems that have allowed us to increase our knowledge about the evolutionary processes of life , develop new biotechnological applications (e.g., industrial applications of ...
